What problem does it solve?

It solves a painful B2B problem.
Notion is a great tool for project management and team collaboration.
But it’s a poor tool for managing databases.
Google sheets is a great tool for managing databases. But it’s a poor tool for collaboration and project management.
Sync2Sheets is the perfect micro-SaaS for integrating these 2 products.

An obvious painkiller product for teams that rely on both Notion and Google sheets for their work.

Initial Growth

Lean Zubrezki (founder of Sync2Sheets) got initial traction by going into niche communities related to Notion and sharing the product.
Subreddits, facebook groups and also on his Twitter profile.
Pro tip -
  • Posting demo videos on Reddit gives you a better chance of getting upvotes, visibility and traffic. Videos make the value of the product very obvious.
